I'm thinking about buying PhpStorm.
I'm an old style professional developer, I use an IDE all day.
BUT I have a nice simple folder structure for my projects on my local PC.
1) I add a directory into the htdocs folder under XAMPP.
2) I edit an htaccess file for that directory and change a config file for root path and database and I'm away
- to move it all to a live server I just change the htaccess and config files.
I have up to 50 separate projects all ready to work on at any time. Some of the projects are fairly complex.
So I tried the PhpStorm demo and my method seemed hard to set up.
It wanted to force a project structure - so my stuff is all in it's project folder, but it seemd I had to define root each time and I couldn't get it to accept a sub folder.
Am I just going to find PhpStorm a big hassle?
I have tried NetBeans and didn't like it - I currently use PHP Designer but it is missing some features.
